Sumter QB Stephen Curtis finds a home

Sumter (S.C.) High quarterback Stephen Curtis, one of the state’s top seniors at his position but not heavily recruited, has been offered and accepted a scholarship to Florida Atlantic, according to Sumter offensive coordinator Grayson Howell.

“I think they have someone returning that started some games last year,” said Howell. “But I think Stephen is a really good fit with the system that they run.”

Actually, FAU has three QBs coming back, but one is a senior and two are sophomores, and Curtis expects to be redshirted as a freshman.

He's looking forward to working with FAU coach Howard Schellenberger, who has a knack for developing QBs.

Curtis is 6-foot-3 and fairly mobile, rushing for 13 TDs while passing for 33. He was intercepted 15 times. He finished with over 3,000 yards of total offense.

He committed this week after visiting the FBS school over the past weekend.
